Sales Forecast for Aromatic Dwarf Coconut: A Case Study at Hutan Melintang, Perak
A Case Study at Hutan Melintang, Perak
Aromatic Dwarf Coconut known as Compact Dwarf coconut with basic structure like a short stem, thick stem and wide leaflet. It is well known plant in Malaysia, especially in Hutan Melintang, Perak. There are some leaders still apply accounting techniques such as instinct and try and error assumption that tend to the get failure in prediction. Because of that, the company will loss and bankruptcy. Revenue’s Data of Aromatic Dwarf Coconut generated from Jabatan Pertanian Teluk Bharu, Hutan Melintang, Perak from the year 2015 to the year 2019 shows that the sales of Aromatic Dwarf Coconut increased every month and every year. This study used Secondary data to forecast the sale of Aromatic Dwarf Coconut using Artificial Neural Network (ANN) and Linear Algebra. Second objective is to compare these two methods which are gives the minimize error interpreted by Mean Square Error (MSE). As a result of MSE, the ANN method shows minimized error which is more accurate rather than the Linear Algebra method.
